With another month coming to a close, it's time to share my favourites of the last month with you again. I do this pretty much every month, so let me just jump right into it, starting with beauty first. As always the links are all in this post if you wish to find out any more information about the products I mention. Follow my blog if you like it, it means a lot to me and makes my life the tiniest little bit easier, thank you.
Laura Mercier Lotus Pink Blush - £20.50
This is an absolutely gorgeous blush, it's quite pigmented, but if you just tap off your blush brush then you get just the right amount of product. It has a beautiful golden shimmer to it, so you can use it on your temples as well and it just creates an extremely pretty healthy flush, it adds the right amount of colour to pull all your makeup together, whether you're wearing heavy party makeup or barely-there-I-just-want-to-look-alive-makeup.
Matte skin is always a winter favourite for me, but as I have started using Nars Sheer Glow (£31) and L'Oreal's Lumi Magique (£11) foundations, I didn't see myself returning back to my matte lifestyle. And then I remembered what a beautiful foundation this is. Here's a link to my review of this foundation here.
VO5 Firm Hold Hair Spray - £3.29
I find using this when my hair is scraped back into a ponytail or a bun for work helps keep my tendrils from escaping. I like to use it for neatness rather than to make an elaborate hairstyle last for a night. It is multi-purpose too, as I spray it on my face when I really need my makeup to last.
I am just loving this shade lately, I reviewed the newest additions to the Barry M GNP range, you can click here to see that. Cardamom is a very unique green that looks great on nails, paired with any skin colour.
Now, I don't feel justified in reccommending this product to you, because it is £28 and that is simply a ludicrous amount to pay for an eyeshadow stick. However, it does last all day and is incredibly easy to wear, you just pop as much as you want on your lids and use your finger to blend it out, then pop some champagne eyeshadow in the inner corners and as a highlight if you wish. It has phenomenal staying powder and is a classic shade to suit everybody. I would say don't spend £28, look on eBay or check out Kiko cream shadow sticks in Golden Brown (£7) or Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze (£5).
My favourite primer, I use it every time I want my eyeshadow to last, and sometimes if I don't want any eyeshadow at all as it evens the skintone and hides any mascara streaks, because I really like that clean lid look, it makes your lashes stand out fantastically.
Diptyque Luxurious Hand Balm - £24.00
Best smelling hand cream I have ever tried, it is supposedly a blend of apricots, argan oil and shea butter, but it smells lovely and sweet like shrinking violets. Instantly makes my hands soft to the touch and again the smell is divine.
I love candles all year round, but I especially love candles in the winter to make my room feel all warm and cosy. Spending more than £3 on a candle is stupid. I like the Fresh Linen candle from Pundland, a lovely clean sheets smell. They also do some a Spiced Apple one to be festive, Marshmallow, French Vanilla and a few more. I got a Gingerbread candle and an Autumn Spice candle from Card Factory for £1.99.
Beverly Hills 90210
The original series is a lot more heartwarming than the newer one, it has ten seasons which is just incredible. You know a show is good if it lasted that long. I absolutely love it so far, I have just finished the season and I interchange between being in love with Brandon or Dylan. They are both so adorable, it is a really good show. Give it a try.
